Improve your knife making skills with a belt grinder
What you need is a belt grinder for metal. And wood too. There are many different belt grinders. What choice do you make? Look for a number of advantages that another belt grinder do not have. The key is to choose a belt grinder that has many attachments to make knives. Like a tilting work plate, small rollers and a large wheel. Ideal for making knifes.
Choose a belt grinder with a lot of attachments
A perfect belt grinder has more work plates with specific functions. A work plate that surrounds the belt supports you to work free around the belt. A work plate that surrounds the large wheel helps you to work extreme precise. A work plate that varies in height allows the knifemaker to create both small and large knives.
Attachments spark the creativity of every knifemaker
Go for a multifunctional machine with many attachments that sparks your creativity with knife making. Whatever you want to create, that belt grinder makes an unbeatable result possible. Fast, efficient, easy and precision machining of all sorts of workpieces is effortless. Whether it’s metal, wood, glass, plastics, ceramics, rubber or mineral materials.
Tilting: twice as many working positions!
There are many belt grinders. Batko is the number 1 in many affordable attachments. The belt grinder has a hinge. The whole belt grinder can be tilted 90 degrees. The result is twice as many working positions! The belt can move vertical from up to low but also from the left to the right in horizontal position. And supported by a workplate! That is a true knife making heaven.
Create anything from metal and wood
A belt sander can also be used for other things, such as restoration machines, instruments and musical instruments or, in short, anything that can be made with metal and wood. That is where a belt grinder with a lot of attachments pays off, because one can create anything using these attachments. There is no more restriction in creativity. If you are a knifemaker who enjoys knifemaking, a machine restorer, a watchmaker, a producer of metal hardware or a farrier a multifunctional beltgrinder with attachments does the job for you. Beltgrinders are used in the production of horse bits, garden tools, outdoor showers, metal furniture, musical instruments, to name but a few.
A VFD is perfect for knife making
A variable speed device, variable frequency device (vfd) with control box is to reduce the belt speed. And a knife jig for the edges. The drive wheel of the belt grinder provides the basic speed. The vfd regulates the speed to higher or lower. The belt sander, belt grinder or sanding machine is equipped with a 220V motor or a 380V (400V) motor. The commonly used power is 1.1kW of 1.5kW. That will do. A 2.2kW motor is used sometimes, but that is too expensive and overdone.
Interaction between man, grinder and belt.
Making knives is an interaction between man, grinder and sanding belt. The knifemaker chooses his sanding belt with care, according to the material. For the novice knifemaker, there are guidelines that are described below. The experienced knifemaker knows from experience how to adapt the sanding belts to his knives. With a good grinder you can do some coarse sanding. To do this, the knife maker uses belts of 40 to 120 grit. Then comes the intermediate processing of the knife. The grit 320 to 2000 is used for the finishing of the knife. The use of a polishing belt can give the blade a nice shine, but also the handle.
